Teen mom’s struggle to keep the rapist from seeing the resulting child!
I have stated my opinion on abortion being a choice. This is what I was talking about. This child (emphasize child) chose to keep her baby that resulted from rape by a 20 year old. Bless her heart for being this brave. This should NOT result in the rapist being able to stay in her life as a result of her choice!
Akin wants to call this a less than legitimate rape, perhaps, but, I do NOT! She was only 14 years old when she conceived the baby. What is the judicial system thinking in allowing the man who raped her to even consider that he might have a right to see this child? This is as though the Old Testament were still governing our perception of the young mother and her child. NO! NO! NO! He does NOT have the right to harass her for the rest of her life! Nor should she be punished for choosing the incredibly tough path of carrying her baby to term!
She is apparently fighting back, I hope she wins this battle. Rapists should never be given this kind of power in the lives of their victims! Rape is a power crime. Hence, every time he contemplates visiting her and her child, he contemplates the power this gives him in her life. This should NOT be! I do not care if there was violence in this crime or not, she says he threatened her, this makes it a power struggle. Compassion for the mother and her child would dictate that the rapist NEVER be allowed to be near her or her child. Gads! When does the torture end? Good luck, young lady, in your battle for your rights and your child’s right to live without fear!
